In this installment of the Mickey McGuire shorts, Mickey (Mickey Rooney) and the gang are excited because it's Billy's (Billy Barty) birthday. At the same time, however, rich folks have come to Mickey and Billy's mother to essentially buy him! They promise to take good care of him, though by the end of the story he's nearly killed and Mickey has to come to the rescue.
All in all, this was both weird and exciting to watch--even if the height of the building Billy fell off of kept changing! Worth seeing and cute...despite the ugly idea of rich folks taking away poor kids!
By the way, you see Billy playing the trombone in the film but he was too small to make the slide move. You cannot make the instrument work at all if this is the case...yet, oddly, it sounded perfect when playing "Ach Du Lieber Augustin".
